Stephen King, President and CEO of Marqui said of the program “As a company that sells primarily to marketers, we were looking for new, creative ways to get to market, and we believe we’re changing marketing dynamics through our innovative, transparent use of the blogosphere”. He then went on to describe the program as “open source marketing”.
